Lately, I have been rereading past emails my dad sent out to our friends and family when my mother was in the hospital.

I hope no one minds if I share the very first email. Sorry, if I wasn't "supposed" to (family). I just really feel like sharing it because I've been thinking quite a bit about it.

The First Month

Tuesday, 7/18/06

This morning at about 10:00 Sharon was in a serious car accident. She was broadsided by a truck carrying a ton of sand (he ran a red light). She has very serious injuries, though she is lucky to be alive. She is still in a coma. She has some brain injury but we don't know the extent at this point. Her spleen was torn, but they were able to stop the bleeding and did not have to remove it. Her pelvis is broken in several places, one of her lungs collagpsed, she has deep lacerations on her head, and lots of bumps and bruises.

She is at Utah Valley in ICU.

We need your prayers.


  1. This just sort of pulls at my heart. In more ways than one. You're a stud, Niels.

  2. Yes. Way more ways than one.
    You're a tough kid.

  3. You're absolutely incredible. Just so you know... I'll be here - If you ever need anything...
